"Start the Shooting" as written by Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Joshua Steven Woodard, Neil S Westfall, Thomas H Denney Jr. and Alexander Thomas Shelnutt....
Hey boys, look where we are
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
So get ready to run
This all goes to show just how little you really know about the way that we are

I notice everything, like every single rumor that you spread today
You're never gonna change let's set this record straight
I know all your dirty secrets that you kept from me
This conversation's over

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

You're all the same
You think that everyone around you cares about what you think
No one knows your name, it's about that time
Take everyone you know and get as far across my state line as you possibly can

I notice everything, like every single rumor that you spread today
You're never gonna change let's set this record straight
I know all your dirty secrets that you kept from me
This conversation's over

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

Will they miss me when I'm gone?
Will this time be for too long?
Wait till then, and see if time brings change
Will they miss me when I'm gone?
Will this time be for too long?
Wait till then, and see if time brings change

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud
Watch your step (watch your step)
This town can chew you up and spit you out
So pardon me but you shouldn't be so proud

    General Comment"It's about that time, take everyone you know and get as far across my state line as you possibly can" = Sickest part in the song. Damn the vocals are awesome in this song.

    Its about proving others wrong...People who may have doubted them in the past.
    "Watch your step, this Hell (or town) can chew you up and spit you out" = Giving fair warning to others that success isnt as easy as you may think.

    I loveeee ADTR!

    General CommentHey boys look where we are
    This town ain't big enough for the both of us

    I notice everything
    like every single rumor that you've spread today
    You're never gonna change

    Wait 'til then, and see if time brings change

    watch your step
    this town can chew you up and spit you out
    so pardon me, but you shouldn't be so proud (X4)

    (watch your step)
    so pardon me, but you shouldn't be so proud (watch your step)
    so pardon me, but you shouldn't be so proud (watch your step X3)

    General CommentI could swear it's "this hell can chew you up and spit you out"
    but town makes sense too.
    but I think hell sounds better.

    General Commentthat opening "HEY BOYS! LOOK WHERE WE ARE!" is pretty moving to me.


    Makes me think of them like completely shipwrecked and scattered about the shore, then when they awake and recollect...HEY BOYSS

    General Commenti sounds like this song was written about a band who would slate them and then they got further than them or somethign like that.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about how people were so fake, and he finally just got out of it and is just saying " watch out, your gonna get the consequences" it's almost like they were friends but they just talked a lot of shit about the guy.
